WHY I’M BEING GENEROUS WITH DNFS IN 2020

2020 is already turning out to be a different kind of reading year for me. We haven’t reached the end of January and my DNF (stands for: did not finish) tally is at SIX and I’m not mad about it. I don’t know who this new me is, but I like her.

MY TOP THREE TIPS FOR A MANAGEABLE GOODREADS TBR (OR TBR IN GENERAL)

MY TOP THREE TIPS FOR A MANAGEABLE GOODREADS TBR (OR TBR IN GENERAL)

Historically, I’ve never been good at actually utilising my Goodreads to-read shelf for anything other than stockpiling a list of books that look and sound cool. I was a reader who just borrowed books from my library immediately upon watching a booktube video that had praised it.

A few months ago, I changed that habit and actually began to reference my to-read shelf at the beginning of every month. Mostly because I noticed whilst I was favouring new releases, so many books I wanted to read had been put on the back burner.

Which isn’t a bad way to read by any means, but it wasn’t necessarily working out best for me. It’s not like the new releases, with all their hype and praise, were actually turning into 5 star reads. So I decided something needed to change and it started with utilising my Goodreads to-read shelf and have turned into something that’s actually functional.

There are only three tips on this list, all of which helped me achieve several of my own reading goals in 2019. I’m exciting to share these easy tips with everyone, so if you’re looking to elevate your reading and achieve some goals this year, definitely keep on reading!

In writing my own TBR for October, I thought that I should definitely share a few of my own favourite thrillers that I think would be great for October. So regardless if you’re planning to participate in Spookathon, here are my recommendations that I think would make great October reads!
